The Bristol Loaf is an artisan bakery situated on Church Road, Redfield. We are small, independent company who handcraft the tastiest breads as well as savouries, pastries and cakes. We use only the highest quality, organic ingredients sourced as locally and ethically as possible. In addition to our more traditional bakes, we also offer a range of vegetarian, vegan and non-gluten products.


We are delighted to announce that our doors will be open from 5th September 2020. The dynamic new space incorporates our organic sourdough bakery, Hugo’s Greengrocer, Two-Belly Cheesemonger and The Bristol Vine – an exciting, new organic & natural wine shop. Our aim is to create a unique shopping and eating experience with an emphasis on ethics and sustainability. Our friendly and knowledgeable team are always on hand to offer advice – so any questions, please don’t be afraid to ask! Watch this space for information on upcoming workshops, courses and community events.


Alongside our range of delicious staples of breads, pastries, cakes and savouries, our ambitious café offers seasonal and fresh brunch and lunch menus with a focus on plant-based dishes and ferments, and showcasing all of the delicious, local produce you can buy in store. Cheese and grazing boards are also available throughout the day to enjoy with a glass of our natural wine. Please note that we are unable to take reservations for tables.
